German designers Patrick Frey + Björn Götte have designed a prefab vacation home for those who could use an escape from the daily grind. The Sommerhaus Piu Prefab Vacation Home is simple-yet-stunning, a small modern cabin with all the amenities its owners will need for a weekend, a month or even a summer at the lake.
Sommerhaus Piu features a natural wood exterior with horizontally-slatted walls and a slightly-pitched roof. The roof, terraced porch and edge section are a charcoal color in contrast, providing visual separation between livable space and functional shelter. Floor-to-ceiling windows open the interior living room to the terraced porch and the environment beyond, while the bedroom section is closed-off for privacy.
The Sommerhaus Piu prefab is perfect for vacation homes or even full-time residences. Traditionally, prefab homes are more sustainably built and less expensive than site-built homes, giving buyers of the Sommerhaus Piu a lower-cost, environmentally-sound option for their second home. Just find a track of land that feels like home, ship in a Sommerhaus Piu and connect water and electricity, and you’re good to go. [via designboom]
